Back For Good :-)


We've been back here in Malaysia for already three weeks. Alhamdulillah..so far so good. We are very busy catching up with family both sides and spring cleaning our home sweet home here in Melaka. So hectic, tiring but satisfying! :)

The other half had report duty on the 1st of December. The process went smoothly and he was given a week leave to rest. Now, hubby's working 9 hours daily with less workloads so that he could concentrate on his PhD write up. The submission dateline is somewhere in March. In shaa Allah, he can do it! ;)

Anyway, we flew from London Gatwick airport to Istanbul Atarturk airport with Turkish Airlines on 27th of November. Just had a short two nights transit in the city before flying home on 29th of November with Emirates. After transit shortly at Dubai, we flew to Malaysia and finally safely arrived at KLIA on 30th November. What an experience! Huhu..

Istanbul Kami Datang!! :D

The food in Turkish Airlines were yummy!

Istanbul is a very interesting city. Being unwell and two nights were just not enough to cover Istanbul itself. But still grateful to be there..;) I will try my best to find some free time to share about our short transit there later, in shaa Allah. :)

Luckily, the weather is not too hot in this rainy season so all of us are in the pink of health now, alhamdulillah. Most of the time we just stay at home when hubby's at work. Spring cleaning are still ongoing..am getting rid old stuffs before our stuffs in London arrive so am still super duper busy. Huhu.

Hopefully, 2015 will be less hectic once we have really settled down, in shaa Allah..

Till next post! ;)

Half-Term Break: The Ice Rink at Natural History Museum


When the girls saw the ice rink and other kids skating at Natural History museum, they got excited and completely forgot about going to Hyde Park. They instantly begged me to go for skating..Oh not again..and it was impossible girls! Kesian..but they did not have any skating experience..so it's a big no. But after they watched a few kids and adults fell off onto the ice they stopped begging me. Hehe..

The day was beautiful! It was pretty bright and sunny hence the place was crowded since it was school holiday. Due to the warm weather, the ice quickly melted and the rink was quite slippery so it's quite challenging for the skaters. Nonetheless, the number of skaters increased towards the evening and the place was happening!

For the tickets if i'm not mistaken, it was GBP8 for each child and GBP13 for each adult and can be bought at the ticket counter nearby. The price is still considered cheap at the moment because usually the price will go up during Christmas and Chrismas school holiday like in previous year. 

We just enjoyed watching other people skating. The girls still had fun though they did not have a chance to skate. Happy aje, dan seronok tengok the staffs skating while showing some ballerina skills. Had a good time indeed. Good girls, mummy love you two! ;)

Later, i'd treated them both a ride on a marry-go-around for being sporting. They both were thrilled! Hehe. Luckily, Zafri felt asleep! Sebab dia tak cukup tinggi, ketidak sure mengamuk nak naik jugak ikut Along and Angah huhu. 

Actually, children who are below the specifiied height could still go on a marry go around but must be accompanied by their parents. But in my case, nobody can keep an eye on our belongings if i had to joined in..tak pelah Zafri maybe next time plak..;))

Anyway the girls had fun riding on a marry-go-around. They moved so fast! It was hard to take their picture without being blurred. Haha. Anyway, I'd enjoyed taking their pictures and others. The picture below was my favourite! i just simply loved the clear blue sky and the magnificent building of Natural History museum. I miss both already..:'( (now the weather is already cold, dull and gloomy. Sejuk, brrr..!!)

We stayed there until Zafri awaked and Babah finished his work. Babah and Zafri also enjoyed the crowds. After having some chips and juice, we took bus to go to Bayswater to eat and pray at Malaysian Hall canteen. Afterwards we managed strolling at Kensington Gardens and played at Princess Diana Memorial Park until it closed.

Phewww, all have done in a day! It's so tiring but always satisfying..we really enjoyed ourselves..the most important thing that my kids were happy. Alhamdulillah. :)

Half-Term Break: V & A Museum


Finally, we minus Babah managed to visit Victoria & Albert museum during half-term break last week. Babah did not joined us as he got to finish his experiment at the lab..poor Babah. Hopefully, Babah will finish it soon. Amin...!

Like other museums such as Natural History and British Science museum, V & A museum's admission is also free. Best, kan! So we did not want to miss visiting it.

At the entrance, we were given a pamphlete about children current activity held in the museum. There were quite number of activities that were interesting to join in.

First we decided to watch a children theatre as we have never experienced it before. It was only 25 minutes performance but it was more than enough. Kids cepat boring, kan? Almost at the end ramai dah main naik turun tangga theatre hall tu including my kids :D but the theatre was not bad at all. The performer pandai attract the kids' attention and made them participated as well ;)

After the theatre, we thought to have a lunch at a cafe inside the museum but we'd found the lunch hall on the way down to the cafe! So apalagi, buka bekallah weols. Jimat..hihihi. Mummy sempat solat zuhur lagi kt situ..alhamdulillah.

After lunchie, we visited the art and jewellery gallery but it's not too long. Zafri dah boring, ngantuk and start merengek tak nak duduk dalam stroller. Uncontrollable for me..so i decided to make a move and that's end of our museum tour that day.

In conclusion, V & A museum is the least attractive museum for kids. The art painting was too high for kids to see and the bare-naked scultures were too much for them. Zahin said the place was haunting, tu diaa. Dia dah la memang penakut macam mummy haha..so tak sesuai!

For adults, there are many to be seen and digested in this museum. Kene amik masa juga. Too bad i did not have a chance to see the royal bridal wedding dress and Islamic section. Huhu maybe next time with Babah plak or when the kids get older..in shaa Allah kalau ada rezeki dan panjang umur. Amin..! :))

Next, we planned to go to Hyde Park but we skipped it as soon as we saw the ice rink at Natural History Museum's compound. Wee! The girls squealed in delight and begged me to go there hihi.

Ok Will share about it in the next post..in shaa Allah.

Autumn 2014


Autumn has been good so far. The view and surroundings are beautiful, masya Allah. The leaves already turned into a golden colour and scattered on the ground..subhanallah

It's a school holiday now. We spent most of the time at home while Babah has been busy at the lab. But two days ago, after Babah came back we all went to Victoria Park as it was sunny. So we did not want to miss it

The park looked so gorgeous with shades of colours hence we took pictures. Kids were also happily running and crunching on the leaves. What a precious moment..we're gonna miss Autumn soon

Lastly, hope you enjoy the pictures! :)

Ps. i had undergone a surgical management (lbh krg DnC) to remove tissue in my womb due to miscarriage thursday last week. According to doc, it's a short and safe surgery if there's no complication.

it would be just around 15 minutes and I'll be awaked after half an hour BUT I only woke up after 4 hours! Allahu Akbar...i lost words as soon as i looked at my watch. I hope it's taken as Kifarah for all the sins i've done before. Huhu Only Allah knows how thankful i am to be alived..*cry*

Salam Maal Hijrah 1436. May this new year brings goodness, happiness and success to all of us. Amin..

Weekend Getaway


First of all thank you who have kindly wished, prayed and motivated me. I'm feeling much healthier physically and emotionally than before. I am truly touched with your kindness and I really appreciate all. May Allah bless you always dearies.:')

Anyway, our dearest Iris had requested to go on caravan holiday again before going back to Malaysia for good. So Babah had booked one for us at Ashcroft Coast Holiday Park in Kent last month through The Sun Holiday. ;)

Since Kent is just an hour away driving from London, we proceed with the plan as we promised the kids though I'm supposed to confine myself..

But for the sake of kids, we glad we made it. And i think it was much needed for me too. I longed for vacation :D

Most of the time i stayed inside the caravan while hubby took kids out to the indoor swimming pool, shop and playground even though it was raining. The kids had so much fun! :))

As for our caravan, all looked new except there was no TV hehe but we survived as we brought laptop! ;) And we slept in the living area because there was no heater as well in the room! ( not installed yet perhaps) but that's no a biggie.

The heater at the living area was functioning and we brought extra duvet too. It warm enough especially for me. Sapu minyak herbanika panas (NR), urut2 sket bg keluar angin, pakai socks and sweater dok dlm duvet. Tido, Heaven! :D

Finally, thank you so much Babah for this weekend getaway and who did almost everything from cooking, washing and cleaning up. You're the best, we love you so much! :x

Miscarriaged :'(

Assalamualaikum. Salam Jumaat..

I was surprised to know that i was pregnant again last month. It is a blessing and rezeki from Allah indeed. We were so happy and excited for the fourth child but it's only for a while..

Unfortunately I started bleeding last week on tuesday. I was worried but then assumed it's normal because i had placenta praevia during my 2nd pregnancy or maybe i was too active. I ran, i carried up Zafri, etc. i forgot that i was pregnant! :(

But on sunday night i had a bad bad cramp like a contraction below and i slept in pain then was bleeding badly with blood clot discharge at 4am. I was panic! I told the other half and he worried too.

so on monday morning we went to GP and the doctor straightly referred me to Queens hospital. Uh oh i could feel something was not right but i gathered myself back try to relax, be patient and redha on what will i found out soon.

The doctors did internal scan first and they said most probably i had miscarriaged. I was speechless..Then i was asked to come again two days later which was last wednesday to confirm it's misscarriage. And sadly yes i had miscarriaged at 8 weeks 5 days..:'(

I was frustrated, crushed and cried inside. Rupanya tak ada rezeki lagi nak dapat baby baru..sobs.

"Allah does not burden a soul beyond more than it can bear (2:286)"

It's true. And Allah knows best. We plan but His plan is above all.

All of us including our kids were sad over the loss..not saying that i already started shopping baby apparels since we are still here in London..sobs.

Sincerely, I was phobia to pregnant again after my third delivery experience but now with the miscarriage my phobia is getting worse..:(:(

Sorry Abang, i've tried my best even though i know you will never blame on me..and you just calmly accept His Qada' and Qadar. I love you more..

Ya Allah, ampuni dosa-dosaku. Amin..! :'(

The Best Summer Ever


Since this might be the last Summer for us, we have been enjoyed it to the fullest. Thankfully, summer this year was the best that we've ever had so far. The sun came out brightly, the weather was warm and the day was beautiful through the whole season. Some days were even gorgeous! Look at the pic below, don't you love the blue skies and white clouds? I do! ^_^

We managed to watch the changing guards event at Buckingham Palace with our good friends somewhere in August. If our friend didn't invite us to go with them I'm not sure when will we have our chance again. Thank you abg Din and kak Aza! :)

To go to this event, you are advised to check the event's schedule first. It can be cancelled due to bad weather. Also go early in the morning so you can find a spot which have a clear view of the event. From the review, the best spot is at the top step of the fountain area in front of Buckingham Palace. But from my experience, i think the best spot is actually at the gate and only if you are the most front! Huhu..

The kids were happy too! As long as they were with their bffs they were happy enough. 

The weather is important, it really influenced the mood hehe.

This year got a chance to see roses at Hampton Court Palace. Lovely roses and loved the fragrance at the garden. :)

Such beautiful memories in London!

I thank Allah for all the blessings that He has given to us from good health, great seasons, new friends, enough bounty and endless love. We couldn;t thank Him enough but hopefully we will try to become good caliphs in this world and the hereafter. Amin!

 Goodbye Suumer..Till we meet again!

My Little Princess


It's been a while i do not share about my kids. All growing up too fast with so many progress and events but only mummy could not catch with them up..hehe hopefully they forgive me

So now let's start with my little princess, Iris. :)

Iris is a kind-hearted, loving, caring, and sweet child. For example; She would wait in front of the bathroom until i finish with my business (esp at night) No matter i say issokay iris if you wanna go in front first but she quickly say no, i won't leave you, Mummy. Awwww I felt touching instantly. :'(

At night whenever both Zahin and Zafri already 'cop' to sleep beside me, Iris quietly either go sleep with Babah or go to her own bed (in the same room with us) Then she would say, Mummy, can i sleep with you tomorrow? Adoiyai kesian anakku, so mmg tangkap leleh la mummy T_T i quickly answer, sure darling i'll sleep with you tomorrow ok. Still i would feel so bad watching her from afar while her along n adik closely holding my arms.

Oh Iris, How i always wish i have an extra arm for you. But hopefully you know that if mummy's not too tired mummy will wait until Along n adik fall asleep then i quickly get to you and holding you in my arms until you sleep safe and sound. :)

Iris would try her best not to forget the magic word like 'please', 'sorry' and 'thank you'. She's so charming..isn't she? Mmg melting la klu dia cakap 'mummy, can i have a chocolate sandwich pleaseeee? Hihi too cute to ignore her requests. ;)

Cuma Iris ni sgt la hyper and daring. suka sangat berlari, melompat dan memanjat! Then she usually end up with bruises, cuts, bleeding and crying. :(

Mummy love you, Iris. Mummy truly sorry whenever mummy tegur/marah/tinggi suara pada Iris especially when you keep screaming too loud after quarelling and keep jumping from chair to chair. I just afraid that you would accidently fall and being injured. When it happens, it almost gives me heart-attack and scared me to death.

I will never forget the day that you were almost being hit by a car at Dagenham. I think my heart stopped beating for a while.

That day you just ran to cross the road to follow me. You were supposed and promised to stay at the park nearby with babah but suddenly you'd changed your mind to follow me but at that time mummy already at the other side of the road. Once i heard you called me out i quickly turned my head and saw you were running towards me and i was screaming your name out of my lung and luckily the driver pressed the break abruptly, his car was too close to you. Ya Allah i can't move at all, i was shaking all over. Babah ran and got you..i didn't care the driver swore 'fucking shit' at me, i just relieved to see that you were safe. That's all. I thank Allah for saving your life..!

But since that day, i'm more alert. I don't trust you anymore in a good way..you're still a small kid, so i should not assume you as a big girl yet. Even i do the same to along Zahin now. Must be monitored all the time, everywhere. Kalau boleh dok depan mata mummy and babah je. Hehe..

When you both at school, i pray hard so that Allah would protect you from any accidents. But kalau dah takdir juga nak jatuh ke luka ke mummy redha..but hopefully not the major ones. Amin

Mummy always pray so that i have enough time to spend my life with you and to see you growing up, get married and have your own family..in shaa Allah amin..! :)

Love you my little princess Iris..:x
